The Witchcraft of Dame Darrell of York purports to be the full account of the Witchcraft practiced in medieval England in the medieval era. The account was transcribed by her nephew after her death in order to preserve all her lore and learning for future generations of witches.

In truth, Dame Darrell was an imaginative recreation of how witchcraft was practiced in medieval England. However, it is not pure fiction. It is based on Lelandís years of prodigious research. And the structure of this work leaves room for readers to create their own practice rooted in tradition, yet responsive to twentieth century needs and sensibilities.

This beautifully reproduced facsimile of the illuminated manuscript includes a full transcript of the text. This is a book that sheds light on an ancient tradition and provides the basis for a modern practice. It will be embraced by those practicing Pagans, scholars, and anyone interested in the legend and lore of England.

Charles Godfrey Leland (1824-1903) was an American humorist, journalist, and folklorist. He is credited with being one of the main forces in the development of neo-paganism.
